Hi Gaby,


I have also come across that bug some time. It is just a missing backslash in front of the special character #.

I've included the patch at the end.

Why I did not send it was that I find "diff -Naur" rather inconvenient.

And I was not yet fully through with the compilation of Silver, but wanted to submit a whole changeset. Unfortunately, some other business stopped my work on the compilation.


I usually have just one working copy. If I come across a problem, I fix it and try to recompile. If it works, fine. But if I should submit a "diff -Naur" patch I need the old an the new file. The old file is gone, of course, so I need a checkout of a second (original) working copy to be able to "diff -Naur". I believe that that is completely unnecessary, because the SVN working copy as well as the tla working copy have the original files stored either in .svn or in the {arch} subdirectories.


I just don't know how I would use "diff" in a convenient way. Could somebody suggest something and put it onto the Wiki?

That would really make things simpler.

Thanks
Ralf
